Snippet from @TheTLS editor Peter Stothard’s ALEXANDRIA in bookstores now! http://goo.gl/kjISYe
It is 6 a.m. Socratis is coming in three hours’ time. He has a plan that is too complicated to explain. ‘You will like it,’ his message says. Maybe I will. He will suggest some kind of tour, I think, maybe to meet his mother, more likely to show off his car.
These are strange days. This time in Alexandria is not what I thought it would be. I never intended to write so much here about my own life. I came with a promise to write about Cleopatra. Instead I am selecting my own memories of past promises to write about Cleopatra.
But I do select every memory by how much it connects to those promises. It seems random. But there is a reason, a pattern and, in the end maybe, a picture too.
It’s interesting how we come up with titles for books. We’re constantly surrounded by life, art, music - basically the changing and vibrant world we live in. The lovely folks over at Overlook Press were inspired by this introspective song by RadioHead.
